: Your mother actually may be responsible here. I suspect that even though each of your parents have physical custody of one child, there is actually a joint custody order from the court. This means that as the parent of a minor child, your mother is responsible for the medical bills just like the father is. It wouldn't matter that she didn't sign the forms. As a parent she is responsible. So as far as the hospital is concerned, yes she probably is liable. But that doesn't mean that she can't go after the father for the money after fact. She would need to read the divorce settlement. If there is language regarding financial responsibility for children that contradicts that, she can sue in court for the money.
